Zentangle Challenge 27

Zentangle Challenge #27 is for tangles starting with R - K - I. For Diane and Carolien's Weekly Zentangle Challenge.
I used Ragz, Keeko, K-Ning and Ixorus.

I've been having fun organizing my tangles in alphabetical order, and then demonstrating how to create them on the
Back.  Then to shorten the demo, I use red for the first step, blue for the second step and black for the third step.2

Zentangle Challenge #24 CD#

My Zentangle Challenge #24 is for tangles starting with C-D-#.  Yes, some tangles are named by a number.
I found all of these on Pinterest and absolutely love them. You may ask what this challenge for?  Well it's for Diane & Carolien's Weekly Zentangle Challenge
I used Chartz, which is the big zig zag pattern with circles, Ditto, (the inside boarder) and 133, which is the outer twiggy boarder.  Hope you like it.

Zentangle Challenges 20 & 21

Zentangle #20 is for tangles that start with K - A - T.  I should also mention that you can use other tangles besides these too. This is for Diane & Carolien's Zentangle challenge

I used Akoya (that's the one going around the boarder and I absolutely LOVE it!), Tripoli (very hard to get all the triangles the same and spaced correctly, which is why I have them colored in solid instead of a design like I started to.  Definately need more practice) I did read that it helps to think of them as circles with 6 triangles creating a circle and 3 triangles creates half a circle and that helped a lot!  Then there is Kecko (the weave one with lines.  Love it!), and finally Knightsbridge.  

Zentangle Challenge #21 is P - I - J and I used Pokeroot (the little mushroom or cherry looking things in the bottom left corner), Puf (which is the one I used most on this tile, very fun!), Intersect (the funny looking stars), and then Jax.

Zentangles 18 & 19

I do believe I am now caught up!  It's been fun, that's for sure!
Ok, this is for Diane &  Carolien's Weekly Zentangle Challenge
First we have Challenge #18, which are for tangles that start with B - E - Z.
Some of the tangles I used were Blooming Butter, Buggy Beads, Buddy, Efilys, Zenplosion & Zebra.  It takes me longer to decide which tangles I'm going to use than to actually do the artwork.  I am finding that one of the tricks is to take it slow, one stroke at a time.  
I really got into the Blooming Butter, which are all those flowers.  

Now Zentangle #19 is for tangles starting with N - V & B and I used Nexus (the 3 crazy stars, Bales (the Boarder), and Vermal.  I Kept it simple. 

 I hope you enjoyed seeing these Challenges, and remember, to see more entries go to Diane Clancy's Blog and check it out.  Here's a link to the beginning of the challenge where you can find very useful information there.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Are You Ready for More Victories in Your Life? Fresh Manna by Pastor ...

Are You Ready for More Victories in Your Life? Fresh Manna by Pastor ...

I read this post by Pastor Tim Burt and it really spoke to me, here's a paragraph from his post.

"The Apostle Paul was teaching Timothy that the point of our conversation with others in the Lord is to produce spiritual edification that helps people live a life of faith and trust in God. It is not to put out a lot of blah, blah, blah that sounds spiritual but really just becomes a lot of words or “meaningless talk.” Paul writes, “Don't let people waste time in endless speculation over myths and spiritual pedigrees. For these things only cause arguments; they don't help people live a life of faith in God. The purpose of my instruction is that all the Christians there would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and sincere faith. But some teachers have missed this whole point. Some have wandered away from these and turned to “meaningless talk.” (1 Tim. 1:4-6)"

Have a wonderful and Blessed day,
